The original film had us following Diana, an Amazonian princess, growing up on the paradise island known as Themyscira until one day an Allied intelligence operative named Steve Trevor crashes off the coast of the island, leading to a battle with German forces on the shore. Trevor explains to the Amazons of the war raging in the outside world. Learning of the millions dying in the war, including women and children, Diana leaves her home to fight in the war to end all wars. The details of the sequel are being kept under wraps, but we do know that Diana will be facing off against Cheetah.
The other still image from the sequel is the one making most waves, is one with Chris Pine looking confused as hell in an 80’s mall with Patty Jenkins adding the caption on her twitter account, “Welcome To Wonder Woman 1984, Steve Trevor!”. The image has definitely generated discussion and theories to explain Steve Trevor’s return, with some questioning whether this takes away the emotional sacrifice of his character in the original film. I’m willing to give it a shot once the context of his return is explained later down the line.
Wonder Woman 1984 is scheduled for cinematic release on the 1st November 2019.
